So, a family friend has left the country and has left behind a few items including a S&W 5904 9mm pistol. This person will not be returning to this country. What is to become of the firearm in question? Can I have it transferred to myself? Someone please clue me in, thanks!

you live in FM? where is FM? in most of the commonly considered "free states" you can own that pistol presuming that it is not stolen.

If I had any idea where "FM" is, I might be able to help. Generally speaking, there's no issue unless state or local law restricts private transfers.

I live in California.

How can I have it transferred to myself when the person that owns it is not present?

And to be honest, I dont even know if the gun is regestered to the person that left it here.

In order to "transfer" the pistol to you in CA, you'll need to take the gun to a gunshop and do a Private Party Transfer. CA requires that both parties are present to fill out paperwork so they can do background checks on both, so this lets you out.

Personally, I'd just take the S&W home with you.

I dunno about there, but here I'd call the ACIC (state version of the NCIC) and say, "hey I want to buy this gun, I'm not sure that I trust the guy so can ya'll run the serial" and they will do it. If that's clean, then a bill of sale would appear. Otherwise, if it's clean it'd stay under the bed. If it's dirty you can do the right thing and turn it in, OR be a dirty bastard. fuck it up where it can't ever fire in a way you can't tell by looking and sell it to some thug.
